Yes it was only a matter of time. Must be five years I have had it so surprised it has taken this long. Normally hook the cable over my shoulder to keep it out the way. Good shout with the battery powered, think I will go down that route next. Don’t need anything massively heavy duty so power wise will suffice.
I've only actually ever cut through a wire once I think, missus used to be a nightmare (so much so I stopped her helping). Been through her trainers, Sky cables, phone cable, chopped the strimmer cable, so we nicked my old man's and 30 seconds later she'd been through that cable as well. Using the drill one time she didn't think to move the jigsaw, so she drilled into that.
